Journeys to Citizenship. Exploring the experiences of new citizens in the UK.

This resource was devised by Professor Bridget Byrne* in association with ACT. Professor Byrne carried out interviews with new entrants to the UK in 2017, asking especially about their experiences of becoming a British citizen and why they chose to do this. The case studies are real and raise interesting questions about identity and belonging. They can be used within lessons that explore aspects of Britishness and British values. The case studies also tell of disturbing stories of the process of choosing to become a citizen and reflect on the nature of belonging.

Blog: 'Immigration Offenders'

ACT Professional Officer Chris Waller talks about how Citizenship teachers might discuss the Home Office's recent 'immigration offender' campaign with their students in a new blog, The Signs That Travel.

The Signs That Travel

How might Citizenship teachers react to the recent Home Office campaign regarding what the Home Office is calling "immigration offenders"?


Firstly, if the language used is defamatory, inflammatory or discriminatory and undermines social justice and human rights then Citizenship teachers would be feeling very uncomfortable about the campaign that the Home Office has been running. Where the law on residency has been infringed then government has a right and duty to uphold the law. It is how it chooses to do this that promotes controversy.
